Bottle, brought back by my parents. Thanks! Nose is lemon, apple, some woody barrel, hay-like malt. Flavor is lemon, bretty with some solid bitterness. Light honey, tart & quite floral. Maybe a bit of tannin in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by someone at dbuckingham’s tasting - not sure who that was. Pours hazy golden with a well-formed white head that leaves a white ring. The aroma is rather tart and funky with lots of lemon and oak. Lactobacillus presence is big here, as well as brett. The flavor is rather complex. Nice malt notes back up the tartness, lemon, and funk. Medium-bodied, acidic and sharp, with lively carbonation. A pretty solid gueuze blend, not better than all its components, but maybe about the average of them.

Corked bottle. Tangy lemon/peach and musty barn aroma. Slightly hazy amber color with decent head. Sweet-tart lemon peel and musty barnyard flavor. Nicely balanced - not too sour. Very good.

Celebrating weekend with this 75 cl bottle from 2009 Nr. 02674. A pyjottenland-tour de force you’ll might call this grandiose blend. Going off with a boom almost champange like with a high carbonation level, but at the same time letting out the smooth, sweet and caracteristic sour gueuze aroma out in to the air..yummy. The pour is light golden with a high white light foamy head. The nose is smooth fruity winegums with sour grapes, wet hay, lemongrass and a touch of vinegar. The taste is surprisingly mild with a tempered sourness and a smooth sweetness.. you can feel a little itch in your ear when drinkin’ it. Palate is cramy and a little buttery with a sweet finish. Nice and balanced gueuze that tends to be a little on the sweet side - could be a beer worth servingn a nice for a gueuze-newbie.

Bottle at RBSG, from alexdad06 at the RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a small head and some lace. The aroma is lemon rind, dirty laundry, and some hay and horse sweat (farmyardy stuff). The flavor is very sour yet nicely fruity with some earthiness, some apricot, some woodiness, and a nice but almost overwhelming acidity.
